1After these thingsPauldepartedfromAthens, and cametoCorinth;2Andfound a certainJewnamedAquila,born in Pontus,latelycomefromItaly,withhiswifePriscilla; (because thatClaudius had commandedallJews to departfrom Rome:) and came unto them.3Andbecause he was of the same craft, he abodewiththem,andwrought : for by their occupation they weretentmakers.4And he reasonedin the synagogueeverysabbath,andpersuaded the Jewsand the Greeks.5AndwhenSilasandTimotheus were comefromMacedonia,Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.6And when they opposedthemselves,andblasphemed , he shook his raiment, and saiduntothem,Yourblood be uponyour own heads;I am clean:fromhenceforth I will gounto the Gentiles.7And he departedthence, and enteredinto a certain man's house,namedJustus, one that worshippedGod,whosehouse joined hard to the synagogue.8AndCrispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue,believed on the Lordwithallhishouse;andmany of the Corinthianshearingbelieved , and were baptized .
9Thenspake the Lord to Paulin the nightby a vision,Benotafraid , butspeak , andholdnot thy peace :10ForIamwiththee,and no man shall set onthee to hurtthee:forIhavemuchpeopleinthiscity.11And he continued there a yearandsixmonths,teaching the word of Godamongthem.12And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord againstPaul,andbroughthimto the judgment seat,13Saying , This fellow persuadethmen to worshipGodcontrary to the law.14And when Paul was now about to open his mouth,Galliosaidunto the Jews,Ifitwerea matter of wrongorwickedlewdness,O ye Jews,reasonwould that I should bear with you:15Butif it be a questionofwordsandnames,andofyourlaw, look ye to it; forI will benojudge of such matters.
16And he dravethemfrom the judgment seat.17Thenall the GreekstookSosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat.AndGalliocared for none of those things.18AndPaul after this tarried there yet a goodwhile, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thenceintoSyria,andwithhimPriscillaandAquila; having shorn his headinCenchrea:for he had a vow.19And he cametoEphesus,andleft them there:but he himselfentered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.20Whentheydesired him to tarrylongertimewiththem, he consentednot;21Butbadethemfarewell , saying , Imust by all meanskeep this feast that comethinJerusalem:but I will returnagainuntoyou, if Godwill . And he sailedfromEphesus.22And when he had landedatCaesarea, and gone up , andsaluted the church, he went downtoAntioch.23And after he had spentsometime there, he departed , and went over all the country of GalatiaandPhrygia in order,strengtheningall the disciples.24And a certainJewnamedApollos,born at Alexandria, an eloquentman, and mightyin the scriptures,cametoEphesus.25
This manwas instructed in the way of the Lord;and being fervent in the spirit, he spakeandtaughtdiligently the things of the Lord,knowingonly the baptism of John.26Andhebegan to speak boldlyin the synagogue:whomwhenAquilaandPriscilla had heard , they tookhim unto them, andexpounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.27And when he was disposed to passintoAchaia, the brethrenwrote , exhorting the disciples to receivehim:who, when he was come , helped themmuch which had believedthroughgrace:28For he mightilyconvinced the Jews, and that publickly,shewingby the scriptures that JesuswasChrist.a
